Africa Foundation COVID-19 Campaign

Building the resilience of 73 rural communities across 6 countries in Africa

COVID-19 arrived in Africa in late February 2020, and its effects have been felt throughout the continent

For Africa Foundation (AF), this crisis necessitated a new set of priorities to build the resilience of the vulnerable rural communities neighbouring our lodges, and the AF COVID-19 Campaign was created comprising six areas of focus:

  • Clinic Support
  • Water Access
  • Food Assistance
  • Business Support
  • School PPE
  • Classrooms

Many of these are short to medium term initiatives outside Africa Foundation’s standard focus, in which they are working with other stakeholders and existing food banks.
